Larry Blumberg and Associates Earns National Award
July 15, 2014

At Marriott International’s recent 2014 CFRST Owners Conference, LBA Hospitality won Marriott’s “Spirit to Preserve Award for Environmental Action.”

LBA earned this prestigious award by its proven commitment to paper recycling at the home office and decision/action plan to go paperless by December 31, 2014.  

During the time period July 2012-December 2013, the home office in Dothan, AL recycled almost three tons of paper for the modest investment of $1,288.  The company will continue this very successful activity which, among other things, releases precious office space for other uses.

Looking ahead, LBA Hospitality is making a significant investment to establish a hosted/cloud capability to store records of transactions, activities, and reports.  This strategic initiative will provide home office staff and hotel property associates with instant access to information, ensure much needed back-up protection, and achieve continued success with LBA’s recycling/environmental conservation efforts.
